Digital Manga to broaden scope: has news that Digital Manga will launch a line of Edu-Manga titles in 2005, featuring the manga biographies of Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, Mother Teresa, Beethoven and Anne Frank. The publisher also plans to release books based on the Japanese TV series Project X:

"Project X is an inspirational series which follows the trials and tribulations of entrepreneurs with good ideas, who thanks to perseverance and good luck finally manage to break through and achieve financial and personal success. Typical subjects of this 'reality' manga series include the founders of the Japanese 7-11 convenience store chain, who eventually became so successful they were able to purchase their American parent company, or the inventor of the 'cup of noodles' convenience food, or the designer of the original Datsun 240 Z."
